Amazing Ant Antics: Wood ants ~ by WoodlandsTV

By woodlandstv

Slow connection? Watch in lower quality

Come and take a closer look into the amazing world of Wood ants. Helen Read from Burnham Beeches shows us how a rotting tree stump can become a home for thousands and how the ants can spray acid at possible predators.

With numbers decreasing around the UK, Burnham Beeches are working to encourage people to stop and look at the ants differently, as they are a vital and fascinating part of our ecosystem.

With thanks to Helen Read and Burnham Beeches

Amazing creature.

"Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise. Though they have no prince or governor or ruler to make them work, they labour hard all summer, gathering food for the winter." (Proverbs 6:6-8)
